Mind The Gap

Josh is not a very willing model when it comes to having photos taken which is very frustrating, as soon as I point the camera in his direction he usually hides his face or pulls a silly face. When he lost his two front teeth he was very proud to show me his gappy smile so I took advantage of it and managed to snap this photo. This was another one of the layouts that was in SBM and he is so proud of it, he is going to take it in to show and tell at school.
I found this fab corrugated cardstock by Creative Imaginations and absolutely love it, it adds a great textured look to your page. Another one of my more recent scrapbook finds has been twine, I used to cut the string off of clothes tags and use that but found the lenghts very limiting. I found a site that sold crafters twine and now have a huge roll of it! It is so easy to use, I lightly mark where I want the twine to go in pencil and then fix a small section at a time using strong wet glue.

Lol! It's a fab LO Racheal, Adam's exactly the same, as soon as he hit 4 he couldn't he suddenly started gurning whenever there was a camera present! It's great to see a 'boy' LO from you, will have to tag it if I see it on UKS!
